"Prime King...very suspenseful. An epic in the making." (Kirkus Reviews)
"With The Drawing of the Three...King says, 'I found my voice'...Did he ever." (The Denver Post)
Upon writing this, I'm on my 8th run through Roland's world. The first
Book is a little all over the place but the subsequent ones are very
Cohesive and the over all story is very deep and immersive.
in the first book the reading I found almost too abrasive. in this reading I felt that it flowed very well and that the voices were done well in ability to tell them apart. the story is taking off. a lot more is happening and I can't wait to listen to book 3
It was a little jarring to hear this narrator after listening to the first book on cassette, read by the author. Frank Muller is very overdramatic at times, but you get used to it.
In the second book of the dark Tower we find Roland basically dying from an infection. Yet he has to go on... He has a prophecy to fulfill. He has to draw three individuals to help him on his quest to the infamous Dark Tower. Who are they and what are their stories, find out in this book.
This is my fourth time listening to these books and it's amazing how much foreshadowing there is, weather or not King knew it at the time of writing. Happy reading.
I loved this tale but occasionally is hard to follow some details
but still couldn't quit listening.
While the first book left me hanging as many first books in a series are apt to do, this book provided more of a beginning and an end on its own. I will continue on to the next book because now I'm fully interested in the fate of Roland.
I have always not been a fan of horror, so stayed away from Steven King. I am glad I caved to peer pressure and tried this and The Gunslinger. look forward to the next book.
